A Point of View: Seasons Greetings!

Posted in Necromancy, Other with tags , , , , , on December 28, 2013 by Sypheara

Hello all, I hope you have had and are having a fantastic Christmas/Yule/Saturnalia/holidays/whatever you wish to call it. I apologise for being unable to post over the last few days, but I have been busy with family and friend stuff which as you can hopefully imagine, has to come first.

Therefore firstly, I’d like to wish you all  a very merry whatever you call it! I have two small updates for you all, which you may find an interesting read.


Firstly, I stumbled across a recent article on the BBC news site funnily enough, which brings a more secular, outsider perspective to the concept of the dead and how they are treated/viewed within modern society. I thought it was highly interesting to read a non pagan / ‘religious’ / ‘spiritual’ perspective which very closely mirrored my own thought strucutrem  especially before I began working with the dead and walking a more openly pagan path. It can be found at the following link:

A Point of View: Why we banish the words of the Dead

Secondly, the write-up on the Necromancy spirit box creation is almost complete, accompanied by relevant pictures. I have decided however to rewrite this from post form into a pdf form, and distribute it as part of the resources, mainly due to how picture heavy it has turned out to be meaning it would have to be spread across several posts. No point having a resources page if I’m not going to use it!

I hope that the article above proves interesting, and again, seasons greetings to you all.


Ritual Write-Up: The Trident

Posted in Occultism, Paganism, The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , on December 8, 2013 by Sypheara

Continuing on with the theme of the day, I have finished the blog reshuffle I have been intending to do for some time now. The resources page has become the links page, and has been replaced with an resources page of my own work. This will hopefully allow me to distribute some of my own work in PDF format, which will make it easier to read, easier for people to get hold of a hard copy, and reduce the amount of articles needing to be split into multiple posts.

The first of the uploaded files relates to a working which I took part in earlier this year, which was run by the Temple of the Ascending Flame. With the material aligning with my own work, I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to give back some time and energy in participating in group work. This is not something I usually do, but it turned out to be a highly rewarding experience. The supplied and uploaded file has only been slightly modified – outside of that, it is identical to the one I sent after the workings were completed.


Seal of Belial

The working itself deals with contacting Hecate, Lucifer, and Belial, over the course of several nights utilising sigils, blood magick, and meditation and visualisation techniques. The results were very interesting, and really helped move my personal practice forward on a theoretically, practically, and spiritual level.  At the time, it was the longest ritual I had performed and the first to utilise blood magick, where beforehand only the breath had been primarily utilised.

It is quite a long and serious bit of work. Many of the sigils I have still not been able to figure out the use or meaning to, but plan to when possible do a series of workings to investigate the main seals revealed. The quick link to the PDF is below.

Ave Hecate,


New Page: Contact

Posted in Other with tags on December 8, 2013 by Sypheara

I have finally gotten around to creating a contact page, as I mentioned in earlier posts.

Hopefully this will allow me to answer more complex questions anyone may have, and answer in a longer fashion to the curious.

Id like to highlight the following as it bears repeating:

‘Please note that I do not offer any services, be that ritual work, ensoulment of items, divination, tarot, cleansings etc for money or otherwise.

It’s important for me to concentrate on my own work and skills at the moment. Whilst I don’t rule out this in the future, for now all requests for such will be ignored for your own good as well as mine.’

The above is down to multiple reasons, but it’s simply safe to say that at the moment I don’t feel comfortable with this. Please respect this when sending messages, as I will not be responding to such requests in an affirmative manner.

Have a good one.
